5 Things Not To Do When A Pisces Man Pulls Away
1. Assume The Worst
The most important advice that I have for you on this topic is to avoid jumping to conclusions. The Pisces man is going to fluctuate in your time with him. He’s a mutable sign, meaning that nothing with him is predictable or solid. This isn’t a bad thing! It’s something to keep in mind while you navigate through your time with him.
He’s not a steadfast lover. Though his love is solid, his actions are not always easy to see coming. This is why it could have come as such a shock to you when he began distancing himself from you. Stop your train of thought and take a deep breath before assuming anything negative.
Pisces is never going to be unchanging. You may think you have his motivations figured out, and then he’ll show another aspect of himself that you weren’t aware of. This does not mean that your relationship is wrecked or that he’s flawed! It means that he ebbs and flows like the Ocean. With this in mind, take a step away from panic and a step towards understanding his core personality.
2. Pull Yourself Away
When Pisces pulls away, you may be tempted to match his energy. “Why shouldn’t I? He’s acting off, so I should too!” Don’t get me wrong, we all have our petty moments – but a loving relationship is not the place to flex that side of you! This makes the relationship descend into toxicity.
If you pull away from a relationship, then you’ll find that he’s afraid to return to you. After all, an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Stay present in the relationship to avoid descending into toxicity. Approach conversations with love. Finding justice and atoning for wrongdoing is an excellent way to offend all involved!
It’s essential to work on compassion when you’re with the Pisces. Get curious about why he’s keeping a distance from you and others. This is going to create a sense of growth and discovery in the relationship (and that’s preferable to the cold shoulder!).
3. Smother Him
When someone that you love feels like they’re floating away from you, it feels natural to want to draw them back to you. If they’re showing no signs of coming back immediately, you may want to go to him and never let him go. This is not what I recommend, however.
It might make you feel sad or panicky to let him take his space away from you. I can tell you that this is the best approach with Pisces.
Pisces is ruled by Neptune, and is associated with the 12th house. This planet and this spot in the chart are associated with solitude. Pisces needs time alone to reset himself! Being alone is when Pisces can be most himself. He absorbs and reflects the emotions of others so well that he can lose track of where his own until he gets time by himself.
It’s challenging to leave Pisces to his own devices if you’re someone who wants reassurance. This is a lesson in self-reflection for you as well. Learn to let him be rather than seek constant confirmation of his love.
4. Avoid Self Reflection
Knowing that Pisces tends to absorb your emotions, it may be time to turn inward on yourself. If you’d like to see why the Pisces has distanced himself, your answer may lie closer to home than you imagine… in yourself.
This isn’t to say that you’re consciously driving him away. You may have a subconscious need to get some space which the Pisces has picked up on. Part of him knows that finding self-actualization without his presence is what you’re seeking.
Pisces has a sixth sense of what others are thinking and feeling. They’re the most psychic sign of the Zodiac, in fact. Whatever you are subconsciously pondering is being reflected in the Pisces man. He’s a real-life weather vane for your inner life!
This is why it’s essential to ask yourself in what ways you’ve asked for this isolation. Sure, you didn’t ask in words. But do you secretly have a hard time accepting love? Are you blocking off complicated emotions? Is a part of you that can’t be seen when others are around begging to be noticed?
5. Get Angry
The Pisces man is hypersensitive, and thus needs more alone time than the average person. He is also gentle and doesn’t want to cause anyone pain. When he does feel that he’s caused suffering, he retreats into himself for some alone time. He’s not going to reemerge until he is no longer the target of high emotions.
It’s essential to relax your words and your anger when dealing with the Pisces man. He is not looking for conflict and won’t do well around it. It’s important to release as much anger as possible before confronting the Pisces man.
My advice is to speak to him gently. He’ll be far more likely to get real with you on why he took a hiatus if he feels he won’t get attacked for his answer. If you’re looking to know the truth about his actions, then have patience and react kindly to whatever he says.

I am sure you see by now why I made it a point to make an article like this. Your instinct when a Pisces man distances himself is often the exact opposite of what should be done! It’s a fine line to walk with the Pisces man, to say the least.
When in doubt, give him space. Isolation from others helps the Pisces get clear on his feelings so that he can regroup with you in a healthier way afterward. It’s my hope for you that you can gain your own clarity when Pisces steps back. This will keep your head on your shoulders while you both take time outs.
